You are Loved - Chalkboard

Got to make a card today!  This one is for 3 challenges.
The layout is from one of my favorite blog challenges - Retrosketches.  A layout I would never think of on my own, but I love it.  So creative!
The challenge on Splitcoast today was to do the "chalkboard" technique.  Stamp on black paper and emboss with white.  Then you can sponge white ink around to create "chalk dust" look.
The 'ABC' Challenge was to have sparkle.  I used 6 rhinestones on this card.

I love how this card turned out.  The colors are Soft Suede, Pink Pirhouette, Black, White and Rose Red.  I used 4 types of embellishments (button, white twine, ribbon, rhinestones), a corner rounder and edgelits.  Also a bit of embossing texture on the little rose red piece behind the button.  AND heat embossing!  This one is loaded!

Trish, I LOVE THIS!!! I've never seen the chalkboard technique and will have to try it now. Also, like that sketch you used! In fact...I just "Pinned" it on my Pinterest board! VERY NICE!
Hope you have a great 2013!
